Judith 13:15 Then she took the head out of the pouch, showed it to them, and said: “Here is the head of Holofernes, general in charge of the Assyrian army, and here is the canopy under which he lay in his drunkenness. The Lord struck him down by the hand of a woman.
“My beloved, the hand of a woman will again strike down the enemy of God’s people. For it pleases God to show forth his might through the humble. His enemy’s defeat is that much more glorious through the hand of a humble woman. But more than this, the Woman we speak of will glorify her Son in her triumph over evil. Her gentle hand will rout the foe; her outstretched arm will fell him. Her army of humble little warriors will go forth with a loud cry to do battle on her behalf. Many will die to this life, but those will be given the most brilliant crowns. Then do not be afraid of those who can only harm the body. Your place is assured if you fight the good fight to the end with your Lady.”
Lord Jesus, we are small and weak, but in you and in your Mother we are strong, triumphant, filled with joyful hope. Help us Lord, through her prayers to fight the good fight and attain heavenly glory. Jesus in Mary I trust in you. Amen.
